Made with Remnants article . . . or John may have been enjoying the Washing Day Adventures of Some Tiny Animals. . . He turned
over . . . the Radio Programme . . . Next page. A short story . . . No he wouldn't read it. A block of advertisements filled up
the bottom half of the page. He read them with more care than he gave the news'. (Walter Brierley, Means Test Man, 1935)

Abstracts are requested for a proposed special session on W. J. Cash and the
idea of progress for the South Atlantic Modern Language Association

papers on this panel will look back on Cash's impact on southern culture and
his influence on the literature of the U.S. South. Topics might include
contemporary representations of the man in the middle, the cult of
gyneolatry since the feminist movement, and the emergence of the Sunbelt.
